[filmscanners] Re: Tri-X on Nikon 4000




A local one-hour lab where I work will develop and print B&W in just
60minutes.  They use a machine with high-speed Ilford chemistry to develop
B&Win a few minutes.  Their printing equipment is matched to the developing
equipment, so when they make prints from the developed negatives, it
alllooks okay; but when I have them develop the film and I try to scan
itmyself, I get really, really bad results (heavy grain, images way, way
toolight).  I finally started developing my own B&W, given that it's pretty
easy, and now I get extremely nice scans--way less grain, and much
smoothertones and better distributed luminosities.  What a difference!

Would you believe that it was a so called "Pro lab" that was the culprit?
They're out of business now - surprise , surprise . Incidentally , I'm
getting pretty good results from scanning this new Kodak Portra 400 B&W
[C-41] - its worth looking into if you've not already tried it  .
